5:14 pm
someone tried to climb up, the gentleman in the jell-o vest, those are bart officers -- yellow vest, those are bart officers. there is a sheriff's department bus out front in case there are arrests. it almost looks like some of the passengers on board the bart train are upset with what is going on with the protesters who are slowing down the commute. >> a year ago we covered a lot of protests in relation to the oscar grant shooting. we saw bart make the decision to just pass the trains through the station without stopping. we are trying to get in contact with bart to see if that's a decision they make tonight with the civic center station. as of right now this train has been stopped for a number of minutes. the doors are now closing. that's an armed police officer

5:16 pm
haven't seen any arrests but we have cruise inside the station, on the street level as well. we will keep watching for this. frank mentioned the one officer, the gentleman in the yellow vest, that is a person employed by bart, peace keepers, if you will, not sworn officers, their mission is to keep things quiet. and we see police officers ready for anything. we apologize for the quality of the pictures. we are shooting underground, we have crews all over. we will stay on top of this. looks like trains are stopping. if bart decides to not stop, we are trying to find that out. this train is finally on its way. if you have an option to wait to take bart tonight, you can see the situation is changing. police are ready for riot gear, looks like they are there to
5:17 pm
keep the peace. we haven't seen any arrests but there are people on both sides of the issue. >> looks like the police department said enough is enough. they got the train off and now there is a greater police presence on the platform. it appears there are still some protesters. i don't know what those papers are, perhaps they were handing it out, talking about their position. the position of the protesters is that the two officers involved in the deadly shooting last week, they want them to face charges and they want them to be fired and they want the bart police department to be disbanded. some protesters still chanting. holding up a picture. that was the gentleman shot and killed last week. he was drunk, he had a bottle of alcohol thatbroke and he was threatening officers with, also carrying a knife. when police responded within a

minute there were shots fired and he was killed. >> i am getting information that one of our cruise, ken wayne, they are on board that train that has protesters on it. we have a reporter on that train. you have to think, the picture we are showing, a lot of protesters trying to make their point a lot of police to keep the peace and a lot of people who want to get home, to their jobs. we have a crew on board one of the trains that has protesters on it. as we get ken wayne's report, we will bring you that so he can tell us what is happening. again, what we see is a situation that changed since the first time. look at that. train won't stop. that's a new development. we learned from bart, according
5:19 pm
to that sign, trains will not be stopping at the civic center bart station. if you want to get off earlier, at powell, think about making those plans now and how you need to get back. bart made a decision, i am assuming in the name of safety -- >> we just saw another train go by in the other direction -- >> without stopping. >> this will upset their evening plans because many of them are not aware that the bart trains will keep going through. you can understand why bart is doing that because a moment ago when the train did stop it was probably there for at least 10 minutes, perhaps longer, there was pushing, shoving. one gentleman tried to climb on top of the train. one of the security workers pulled him off.
5:20 pm
>> there goes another train. hopefully the word will get out quickly and the commuters who need the train to get home will realize they can walk to another station, powell and the other station might be 18th and market or church and market. >> you know how we said ken wayne was on board, when the train stopped that next station, the protesters wanted to get off and get back on, not an option at this point because as of a couple minutes ago, bart made the decision not to have trains stop that civic center station. the protesters can't come back to join the larger group and thereare a lot of commuters out of luck. we are taking a look here at the map. is it powell? one -- >> powell on one side.
